Students Learn The Art of Great Casting
Felicity Jackson visited the second year students on the TV & Film diploma last week to talk to them about casting in the new era of online casting agencies. Felicity works for StarNow the largest online casting agency in the world with over 2 million members. StarNow works with a range of actors and is a perfect fit for Futureworks students and their various film projects.
"We believe StarNow and Felicity, in particular, will enhance the understanding and application of the art of great casting" said Richard (Tich) Hellawell, leader of the Film and TV diploma course.
Felicity talked to the students for nearly 3 hours discussing how films from student productions right up to The Hobbit (2012) were using StarNow on a daily basis to cast the best possible actors.
"She was brilliant. When is she coming back?" said Andrew a diploma student.
Felicity has agreed to talk to the students again sometime in July. StarNow has some excellent industry advice and many other resources for talented and creative people. We hope this will be the beginning of a great relationship between Futureworks and StarNow.
